You never know what's going to pop up in our comments section.

Exhibit A: the following item, in which the reader of a post ranking Tim Tebow as the fifth best quarterback in the NFL shares an unusual view about Christian athletes, false gods and swooshes.

Charles Hubbard writes:

SO... IS GOD "THE BEST" FOR CHRISTIAN ATHLETES?

Why are Christian athletes cashing in on endorsing products that honor the name of the pagan goddess Nike?

Christian athletes in all sports should HONOR GOD!

How can we go against God and expect to be fully blessed?

In Exodus 23:13, GOD says... "Be sure to do all that I have said to you. You must not even say the names of other gods; those names must not come out of your mouth."

We are not even to mention the names of other gods and goddesses... and surely not to wear their names on us.

We shouldn't wear anything referencing any other religion either!

No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.
1 Corinthians 10:20

That's right... the pagan goddess Nike is a demon.

HONOR GOD!... not gods, goddesses or demons...

The BEST is God's love for you... It is free yet more valuable than anything in the world!

If you shouldn't mention the name of other gods, then delete them from your blog!

It would seem that Charles Hubbard is a fruitcake.  Perhaps we should all chip in and get him some Air Satans for xmas.

True that.

So what are the preferred shoe of God? Are they made in Heaven?

I would love to make my own goosedown coats and air jordans in my basement but God willing, China just started switching to imports, thanks and praises.

OMG how did I not think of that!!! Clearly Tebow should be scrambling from opposing defenses in some Christ like thongs.
